The Magical Bond between Two Hearts: A Wreck-It-Ralph Fan Fiction
Prologue: Lucy’s Adventure Begins
There was always something special about her. Whether it is her magical powers or her kindness to others, Lucy was someone to count on as a friend. The sad part about her was that she was an outcast ever since her game was plugged in at Litwak’s Family Fun Center and Arcade. When her game, Shining Magic, was plugged in, gamers came from every nearby neighborhood to play it. It was almost as popular as the first games first plugged into Litwak’s Arcade.
The game Shining Magic, was an adventure game where the gamer controls the characters. The goal of the game was to push back the forces of evil and darkness from the kingdom of Maic using powerful magic used for good. The only ones who can receive this magic are the children who are defined special in the eyes of the light. One of these children was in fact Lucy.
As a 12 year old child Lucy was indeed different from the rest of her fellow players. When the game was plugged in, all of the characters were there, except for one. Lucy was the last child to appear in the game, when in fact she was supposed to appear when the game was plugged in. Her powers were also as strange as the late appearance: Lucy had the power of Light. The rest of the children thought she was a freak as soon as she was born. They would scold and laugh at her for being so different.
"Look! There goes the little freak!"
"Hey Lucy! Why don't you bring life to this dead leaf!"
"She'll never fit in, she's just too different from us!"
“It’s not my fault for being so different.” She would always reply, yet no one listened.
The only person that would stick around Lucy was her twin sister named Daisy. At least, that's what Lucy thought of Daisy as. Daisy was the most popular player in Shining Magic, and the strongest of them all. She had the power to control the element of Water, Wind, and Fire. But unlike the other children, 13 year old Daisy had ideas of her own. She explored in places no other child has gone before, and wished for something more than herself.
When Lucy was born, she did not scold and make fun of her like the rest of the children. Instead, she would treat her as if she was her own sister. They became best friends as soon as they saw each other. Every night when the arcade closes, Daisy would run off with Lucy and have lots of adventures outside their kingdom.
Lucy would always ask each time: “Where are we going Daisy?”
“You’ll see.” Daisy would always reply.
The adventures they went on ranged from finding The Hidden Nest (a secret hideout for just Lucy and Daisy), to exploring the Ruins of Our Past(a cave with drawings the two girls did not understand), right down to one day exploring the tunnel that lead to Grand Central Station.
“What do you think is beyond that gate Lucy?” Daisy asked, peering into the dark tunnel.
“I don’t know,” Lucy replied nervously, “But maybe we shouldn’t go. It could be dangerous.”
“Oh, come on Lucy!” Daisy chortled, “It can’t be that bad of a place!”
She grabbed on to Lucy’s shoulder. “Think about it…” she whispered, “Millions of other characters just like us right outside our very game, can you imagine it?”
Lucy looked at her friend, and then stared into the dark tunnel. A tunnel that lead out of her home and into a world full of unknown and doubt. It was forbidden by her kingdom to ever enter through the tunnel. She had never thought of leaving a place that she felt she didn’t belong in. All those years of being treated like an outcast by her peers, laughed at for having the only power in her world that no one else had.
“I….” she started, and then sadly sighed.
“What’s the matter sis?” asked Daisy.
Lucy looked at her sister. She saw her as the big hope in her whole life, yet Lucy felt she was being distant with her as well as the rest.
“Nothing.” She replied.
A smile spread across Daisy’s face, so Lucy tried to bear a smile to let her very best friend know that she was alright. She was not happy though, Lucy was very unhappy to be alive. Yet she managed to bring a smile to her sad face. “Daisy… I wish….”
“HEY LET’S GO!!!” Daisy shouted, already running.
Lucy shrugged it off, and ran to catch up with her as they headed back to Maic.
0 - 0 - 0 - 0
“GO, GO!!!!” Daisy shouted.
“I’M GOING!!!!” Lucy shouted back.
Fire and Ice whizzed by their faces as the girls made their way towards the gate that lead out of Maic. As Lucy ran, she looked back to see the destruction that lay behind her. A huge, dark shadowy figure towered above the carnage.
“Keep running!!” Daisy yelled.
The shadowy figure turned to look at the little figure of Lucy. She stopped right in her tracks, terrified as the figure made its way closer and closer. Lucy was struck down in fear. It wasn't just a few days before when she was on her last adventure with Daisy to the forbidden tunnel, and now was nearly close to death, her home crumbling around her. Suddenly something pushed her down. She tumbled and rolled down until she stopped, laying face up to the blackened sky. Pain went through her arms and legs as she struggled to get up. Her legs quivered as she stood up. Suddenly swarms of shadows passed by her. They were shapeless, mindless beings of evil that would destroy everything in their paths just to satisfy their hunger. Lucy looked around and saw that she was the only one who made it out of the kingdom.
“Daisy, where is Daisy?!” was Lucy’s first thought. She turned around and saw a horrible sight. Daisy, Lucy’s sister and her only friend in her world…was gone. Swallowed up by the darkness that consumed her home. She wanted to run back and try her best to save her, but she knew that her powers were not ready for her yet. She could not as much as knock an opponent down, she could only use a little of her healing powers that she possessed. Frustrated, Lucy was torn between going back and saving Daisy, or running away and hopefully the shadows would not catch her.
Then, she remembered where the forbidden tunnel was. "What did Daisy say about it? Millions of other characters on the other side?" Lucy gasped. "Maybe they can help me!"
With this she came up with one solution: all she could do now was run…run away from the darkness and into the tunnel to find help. Taking a huge breath, Lucy ran her way up to the dark tunnel. Without hesitation, she kept running until the game Shining Magic was out of sight.
At first the tunnel was so dark that Lucy was unable to see past her hands. She kept going, determined to reach her goal. But the darkness of the tunnel closed in around her. Lucy felt so lost without Daisy to guide her. Unable to keep going, she felt tears come down her eyes and softly, she began to cry. She began to lose hope. But then, she saw something in the dark.
“What is it?” she wondered, “I can’t make it out.”
Lucy walked slowly toward it blindly, squinting her eyes to see if she could see it clearer. Suddenly she felt a warm sensation reaching out to her. It seems to reach out to touch the very being of her. She looked back at what used to be her home.
“Daisy…” Lucy sighed sadly. Her eyes began to tear up.
“No! I can’t give up. My sister wouldn’t let me.”
Then she saw something that was glowing on her shoulder. The symbol that represented her magical powers glowed a golden light that she had never seen before. Lucy then realized that as long as her magic light is glowing, there is hope. She took a deep breath and then with a confidence strong in her heart, ran towards what was to be the end of the tunnel. Out of nowhere there came a bright light. Shielding her eyes Lucy stumbled out of the tunnel into the doorway that would lead to Grand Central Station. Looking up she saw a bright light bulb in the middle of the ceiling, towering above her.
“Where am I?” Lucy muttered drowsily.
She looked above to find an illuminated sign that read:
Out of Order: No Trespassing
“That’s my game!” she shouted dazedly, “But why does it say Out of Order?”
The light bulb above began to flicker. Lucy began to realize that she was not at home anymore: she was in what seemed to be the real world. Slowly Lucy sank down to the floor, hugging her arms to her knees with tears stinging her eyes.
“I wish Daisy was here….”she sadly thought, tears streaming down her face, “I miss my sister, the citizens of Maic; I even miss the children that always picked on me.” She smiled at the thought, but then shrugged it off.
Now the light bulb was starting to go out. Then something moved from the tunnel behind Lucy. She turned, frightened to think that the shadowy figure she saw before Daisy push her away from it was after her again. A flash of light zipped by, knocking her down. Rubbing her head she sat back up, to find that a beautiful, white dove was staring right into her face.
“WOAH, AHH!!” She screamed as the dove fluttered in the air to avoid Lucy’s flailing. The dove then landed right on Lucy’s shoulder. She tensed up, fearing the dove would peck at her, but the bird simply just sat still on her shoulder. After a while Lucy was able to relax her arms and let the dove stay on her shoulder. Slowly she stood up, being careful not to harm the dove.
“It seems to be asleep,” she thought, trying not to wake it, “I wonder….”
She slowly moved her hand to the dove’s head. Just about when she was about to touch it, the dove shot its eyes open. For a moment the two of them stared at each other, with Lucy’s hand outstretched to the bird. Then ever so slightly, the dove moved its head to Lucy’s outstretched hand. Lucy giggled as she stroked the dove’s head to its wings.
“Looks like we’re going to be stuck here for a while, huh?” she asked the dove.
The dove shook its feathers in reply. “You probably don’t know what I’m talking about, do you?” she said to the dove. The bird looked at her with its big eyes. Lucy slowly sank back down to the floor once again.
“You know, I could use a friend to take care of.” She muttered to herself, “What do you think?” she asked, turning to the dove.
“Coo,” the dove replied.
Lucy smiled. “It’s settled then. I’m going to take care of you. Oh, but what's you're name?"
The dove simply shook its head.
"Well since you don't have a name, I'll name you. I'll call you..." Lucy paused thinking, "...I think I'm going to call you...Sophie. It's the name of the last queen that ruled the kingdom of Maic. What do you think?"
The bird flapped its wings, making Lucy jump. Realizing that the dove was only happy, she giggled in reply as the bird came closer to her. In return Lucy pulled the bird close to give it a warm hug.
"It's settled then." she happily responded. The only thought she had now was to get some sleep. Slowly she closed her eyes and drifted off to sleep; with the dove, Sophie, cuddled up next to her.
Just at that time, the light bulb above went out completely.
